I have already answered to one question really similar to yours. So, my aunt has a glass shower door that are always (and I really mean it), always clean! So, I know how hard it is to keep that door clean and shiny and asked her for her secret. She actually make some mixture and cleans door with it. In the bottle of water add a juice of one lemon, lemontus powder (you can buy it in any supermarket) and sodium bicarbonate. Spray your door with this mixture and rinse after a few minutes. Your shower door will be clean for sure!

My best friend just had a baby, and she's my age. So I'm a godmom now, which is crazy. grin:

I dont know either. Neat idea!

Yes, this issue has been discussed her a lot. And no one seems to have the definitive answer, maybe because water in YOUR area is slightly different in the minerals it contains. What is working best for me now is a mixture of plain white vinegar, lemon juice and water. I spray it on, and let it sit for a while, as I do other things in the bathroom. I use a Magic Eraser to scrub the stinky vinegar stuff off. Then spray on ordinary ammonia based glass cleaner and wipe it down with a clean lint free cloth.

I am always open to new ideas for this problem!

I have had shower doors like this...I use "the works" it's actually a toliet cleaner, however works great on cleaning up calcium or water spots. Do NOT let it sit on chrome for very long as it will discolor it. But it literally eats thru calcium and water spots.

I use Comet and a Magic Eraser. On the really bad or old shower doors, I also pre-soak the doors with Lime-Away 1st.

When the water on the door die, I wipe it with a dry cloth. Yes, you have to spend a few minutes on it, but it's worth it. I used to have a similar problem with bathroom Windows. They constantly misted up after someone took a shower. Nothing helped in solving this problem. On the Internet, I found a life hack that says that if you smear glass with shaving foam, it will stop sweating. This method only worked with a mirror, but it didn't work with a window. The only solution to this problem was to change the window. We have been choosing a company that will help us in solving this issue for a long time, and in the end we chose since they have the highest quality Windows we could find.
